A Leading Identity Conference: What to Expect at Oktane20

Update: March 5

Every year at Oktane, we look forward to bringing together thousands of IT professionals, product leaders, and developers to discuss the importance of identity.

As we’ve followed the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), it became clear that, this year, the best way to safely engage with our community is through a unique digital conference experience. Our vision is to enable any organization to use any technology, and we’re applying that focus to Oktane20 Live: we’ll leverage the best technology to deliver an innovative, virtual attendee experience.

Oktane20 Live will offer our keynotes, dozens of breakout sessions, and ancillary programs online, and will give attendees the opportunity to interact with sponsors virtually as well. The virtual event will be available to anyone, free of charge. We look forward to sharing our vision, product innovations, and latest customer journeys with you online the week of March 30. Sign up for free.

You know it, we know it: identity is top-of-mind for organizations all over the world. As our networks of employees, partners, and customers continue to evolve, managing and securing their identities is vital. At the same time, it’s important to actively appreciate the individual people who collaborate every day to do important work in this space. That’s where we come in.

At Oktane20, we’re celebrating both of these components of identity. As the leading conference of its kind, Oktane explores how the identity and access management (IAM) and security landscapes are changing—putting the spotlight on our customers as they rise to the challenge. But most importantly, it focuses on people, bringing professionals to San Francisco so that they can expand their networks, build bridges, and tell their stories. With that in mind, we’ve designed an event where it’s easy for you to get the most out of attending. Here’s how.

Streamline your training

Jump start your time in San Francisco with exclusive training sessions to help enhance your skill set. We’re offering some of our most popular courses onsite, such as Okta Essentials, Okta Customer Identity for Developers, and Manage and Integrate Your Users with Okta.

Oktane is also a great place for you to build your capabilities and credentials with Okta certifications. There are three exams available to fit our attendees needs. Take the opportunity to accelerate the certification process during your visit to Oktane.

Learn about the power and value of identity

More than 80 breakout sessions and hands-on labs will take place between March 31and April 2. We have so much to offer that we’ve added an additional half day of content on Thursday after our morning keynote. Whether you’re new to IAM, or have years of experience under your belt, our sessions have been crafted to provide meaningful learning opportunities for all attendees—and there’s a lot to choose from.

We also want to make it easy for you to attend sessions that make the most sense to you based on your level of Okta knowledge, or the products that are most relevant to your organization, like Single Sign-On, Okta Access Gateway, or API Access Management. Another option is to select the sessions that are best suited to your role—whether you’re an IT professional, security expert, or a developer, we have plenty of options for you.

Though the conference is tech- and innovation-driven, our keynote speakers are leaders in diverse fields, whose knowledge and experience encourage, challenge, and inspire everyone. On deck for this year: former U.S. Secretary of State and bestselling author, Colin Powell; creator, executive producer, writer, and director of Mr. Robot, Sam Esmail; and leading educator, journalist, and best-selling author, Esther Wojcicki. We’re also excited to have customers like CarMax, Discover, Inc., T-Mobile, and Tyson join us on the keynote stage.

Make a trip out of it

Beyond the conference itself, Oktane20 is an opportunity to explore the beautiful Bay Area. We’ve partnered again with Spousetivities to offer fun, local activities—from wine tasting to whale watching. This program is available for any Oktane attendees and their guests.

Also back by popular demand is our affordable child care program right next door at the Intercontinental Hotel.

A benefit to your entire business

Not only does Oktane20 provide you with a place to grow your skills, deepen your knowledge, and network with your peers, it also showcases our reseller, GSI, technology, and integration partners presenting the latest products and solutions to help you embark on your next initiative.
